    I want to go to see baz's place again but until I'm totally rid of this flu bug I wont be going anywhere.
    Maybe our Permi group can come down sometime.

    I'll do photos and video, if I remember. Means I have to carry 2 cameras though (old gear) so I will look the right tourist.

    Thanks everyone for coming along. It was a great day and we had a big group of wonderful people. Gotta say after two weekends of open gardens and some long work weeks I need glass of red and a relaxing for a day. Hmm I'm bored, think I might go do some gardening...lol

    Thanks for posting all those well shot photos, classic shot of Ted the horse pushing his way into the crowd looking for food and attention. Always nice to see how someone else sees my gardens. :)

    Just uploading a walkaround loop of the entire garden in 1080P to youtube. Will be ready in several hours.

    T'was a good day, and I'm sure everyone learnt a lot. Congratulations.

    I decided to 'deshake' the footage, set it to work overnight, wake up this morning, error.

    I'll try again after work otherwise I'll upload it raw.

    Nice photos SOP. Is that your little one fast asleep?

    Great to see Baz put his 'dress' crocs on for the tour. I recognise a few Perm Noosa folk too.

    That's an Everton Hills Permie couple's child. They wanted a photo so I emailed through a full-size for them after the event. Included it there, because it's cute.

    Not a huge fan of taking photos of faces, some people are funny so I do stress if any photos need to be removed, let me know.


    I haven't captioned the photos but I feel as though this is quite significant:

    Demonstrates the importance of on-site mulch/humus creation. Ice cream bean, qld arrowroot, mulberry, mango, cassia, pigeon pea, and tobacco bush. Probably Pinto's Peanut at ground level, and maybe a grass or 2 off frame.

    That's the video. Remember to visit Youtube and turn it to 1080P if you have the bandwidth for it.

    Thanks for uploading the video, nice to see the garden in motion. =) Was waiting for you to start commenting... I am going to add it to my blog so it might get a few more hits.

    Re: Crocs, they are good quality offroad Crocs =) At least I was not in my normal gardening clothes. Mind you that is normally a cap, t-shirt and shorts.... lol.

    It was a good mix of permie people. I had to laugh when I said people could help themselves to the mulberries and some of the red stained faces that came out of the trees. =)

    Write a description for it, email it to me and I will add it to the YouTube video page.

    The 'deshaking' took my footstep shakes out, added some weird zooming to the video. Learning process. I have a video of a Carpenter Bee to upload yet.

    Nice video!
    And baz has reminded me that I haven't visited my mulberry tree for a few days....
    What are the 3 trays with mesh over the top?

    Waterchestnut, kangkong and watercress. Mesh is to keep the local water fowl out of them. Also have another two batch tub wet gardens with a mix of the above.

    I'll check the photos and videos when I go to town next.
    I'm glad everyone was happy and had a good time .... mulberry red faces, I'm jealous I haven't even got leaves on mine.
